This is really scary. We have become dependent on the Internet for so many things now - news, communication with family and friends, shopping, financial dealings, and much more - and now all of those things are going to be controlled by the UN?? We are giving up all of our leadership and much of our freedom voluntarily?

I hope the GOP uses this as part of the fall campaign message. But then, maybe I'm too optimistic in thinking that most Americans will understand the danger in doing this.

Glenn Beck made a very valid point this morning on his radio show.  The Internet was developed and paid for by Americans. This President is giving it away for free. In essence he is giving away a major asset of this country without receiving a dime in return.  As Glenn said - where is Silicon Valley on this?  Why isn't congress screaming about this as it's no different than a major corporation giving away a major division of the company to competitors for free, he went on to say people have no idea how serious this is and why it's being ignored for the most part was very disturbing to him.  I agree with him.. where IS congress on this.  Issa??????

Unfortunately Jay Rockefeller isn't the brightest bulb in the box so his thinking this is great doesn't surprise me. Newt is correct.

Yes, indeed. It worries me to think that too many Americans will agree with Jay. Lofo's, y'know?

I know.  A couple of good article posted the last few minutes in Opinions - not certain if you read them or not.  Seems at least some journalists are seeing the dangers here.

Yes, you were remembered.  We don't always agree on everything, but you always disagree politely and you're a smart poster.
